CM3110 Transport/Unit Operations 1
Develop an understanding of the processes of momentum transfer (fluid mechanics) and heat transfer. Presents the basic equations of microscopic momentum and heat transfer, along with macroscopic transport equations that can be used in engineering analysis.
Semesters Offered: Fall, Spring (different instructor)
Pre-Requisite(s): CM 2120 and (MA 3520 or MA 3521 or MA 3530 or MA 3560) and MA 3160 and PH 2100
CM3215 Fundamentals of Chemical Engineering Laboratory
This course will be an introduction to basic laboratory methods and instrumentation used in the measurement of fluid flow, heat transfer, and mass transfer. Topics to be covered include methods of statistical data analysis, experimental design, principles of measurement and instrumentation, and presentation of data.
Semesters Offered: Fall, Spring
Restrictions: Must be enrolled in one of the following Major(s): Chemical Engineering
